In this message we explore the remaining six cities mentioned in Revelations 2 and 3, plus several others we visited on the recent biblical study tour in Turkey. We look into what life was like for Christians in the early Roman Empire, what brought them into conflict with Rome, and the inevitable persecution that followed when it came to obeying God or man.
